The wait is over! Indie-pop global star Amy Shark releases her brand new long-awaited album ‘Cry Forever’
The new album ‘Cry Forever’ was written and recorded between the US, UK, New Zealand and Shark’s home studio on the Gold Coast, her exceptional songwriting is on full display here, co-producing with A-List producers: Dann Hume (ARIA 2018 & 2019 Producer Of The year), M-Phazes (Ruel, Eminem), Joel Little (Lorde, Taylor Swift), Jamie Hartman (Lewis Capaldi, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man), Dan Wilson (Adele, Leon Bridges) and Sammy Witte (Harry Styles, King Princess). ‘Cry Forever’ also sees Shark team up with blink-182’s Travis Barker on “C’MON” and global superstar Ed Sheeran to co-write single “Love Song’s Ain’t For Us” featuring Grammy award winning artist Keith Urban.
Amy says, “I’m so excited to finally share this album with you all,” says Shark. “It’s honest and sometimes dark but with sprinkles of happiness, loneliness, confusion and above all passion.”
Through her unvarnished, emotional songwriting and flair for storytelling, Amy traverses topics as universal and confounding as love and heartbreak, triumph and disappointment, beauty and ugliness in an effort to better understand herself, other people, and the world. “Everyone has been through these things at some stage. Even if they’re not relating to it exactly, there are so many lyrics you can pull from and turn into your own story,”
‘Cry Forever’ is the creative culmination of an artist who has undergone the kind of personal and artistic evolution only made possible by an ample serving of life’s great challenges. “I feel like a totally different artist to what I was during ‘Love Monster,’” she says. “I’m a lot more confident with who I am as a person and as an artist in the studio and on stage. I know what I’m doing now and I really wanted to flex that and show people that I’ve grown as an artist,” she says. “This is my piece of art and I set out to make it perfect. I didn’t leave until I had the sound that I wanted and didn’t stop writing notes until each song was where it needed to be.”
